Yoga studios around the country are turning into the new nightclubs – om shanti!
Taken with love from our friends at Well+Good NYC:
High heels? Tequila shots? Late-night slice? So tired! These days, dance parties around New York City come with kombucha, raw chocolate, and are done in bare feet. That’s because the hot new dance club, it seems, is the decidedly anti-velvet-rope yoga studio.
There are two main yoga dance party varieties thriving in the city right now—the combo yoga-and-dance class, represented by Yoga Soundscape, and then the yoga class followed by the dance party called Get Your Dance On. Though fluidity between the two is really part of the experience.
Aarona Pichinson, who’s spearheading the Friday-night Yoga Soundscape event at Kula Yoga Project in Tribeca, says historically large-scale yoga classes with live DJs and a few musicians have organically grown into a dance or dinner party afterward.
The yoga nightclub that’s made the most noise to date is Get Your Dance On, with parties in L.A. and NYC, and which have cool factor you might not expect. (Unless you knew some of its supporters, like Sacha Lewis, co-founder of Flavorpill.)
